Having escaped with the plane, Gant first heads east to the Ural Mountains , then turns south toward Turkey.
The plane lacks fuel to reach China, and even with stealth capability would never risk the dense Moscow defences to the west. Gant intentionally encounters an Aeroflot jetliner, then vanishes north, hoping to mislead his pursuers. As a result, the Soviets concentrate their search to the south.
Gant hugs the eastern slopes of the Ural Mountains to evade Soviet acoustical listening stations, but is spotted and fired upon by a SAM station equipped with infrared search sensors.
Gant decoys the incoming missiles by destroying a Tu Badger that chances upon the scene. Gant escapes, but the Soviets are now alerted to his heading and redirect their search efforts to the Barents Sea area of the Arctic.
A Soviet warship spots Gant and attacks, firing missiles and attempting to launch a helicopter.
Gant destroys the helicopter, but he is now nearly out of fuel so he climbs to stretch out his range. The novel is set at the end of the Cold War and reflects on the demise of the old political and moral certainties. His father was the legendary rugby journalist JBG Thomas, from whom he inherited a delight in vivid language. He ended his career as head of department.
Having made an unsuccessful start as a scriptwriter for radio, he soon turned to writing novels, beginning with The Rat Trap His wife, Jill, acted as his amanuensis and editor of all his books. He died after a short battle with acute myeloid leukaemia. The violon d'Ingres in which Thomas found deep satisfaction was his writing about philosophical subjects.
His volume of essays, There to Here: Ideas of Political Society, appeared in and he finished a two-volume commentary on the writings of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche shortly before his death. He regarded philosophy as "the greatest adventure of all". But his life's work was as a master storyteller. His other books in the spy genre include his fourth novel, Snow Falcon , which was favourably reviewed by none less than C P Snow, together with Sea Leopard, Jade Tiger and Firefox Down, all of which made him an international bestseller; the last-named was dedicated to Clint Eastwood.
His books have sold more than two million copies. Asked why he was drawn to the thriller, Thomas said, "Because of its evident sense of tension and danger, the deliberate structure of the plots, and perhaps the emphatic moral framework, just as many writers of detective fiction are drawn to the sense of justice their books demonstrate towards good and evil. There is an attraction in the thriller or adventure story, for both the writer and the reader, in knowing which side one is supposed to be on.
And thrillers are optimistic. Their problems are soluble and they are resolved by individuals.
As Oscar Wilde said, 'The good end happily, the bad unhappily. Although the invention of the techno-thriller is sometimes attributed to Tom Clancy, aficionados of the genre believe Craig Thomas to have been its true originator. He found his own voice in writing out of this preoccupation with geopolitical problems and conflicts. He believed that the kind of books he wrote had not been consigned to history by the fall of the Berlin Wall.
A formal man, courteous and amiable, Craig Thomas took a lenient view of humankind but did not flinch from recording some of the atrocities of which we are capable.
